First and most importantly to me is: “Your not dependent on the Oil, electric, propane or Gas Companies” You call the shots. If you desire to get your own wood, heating is free!
You might of heard the saying “wood heats twice” the wood heats you when your getting it and heats your home as well.
Let me tell you cutting and collecting is wood is not for the weak. It is a hard job the gets you shape quickly and keeps you there and saves you money and time at the gym. If you feel like not going and get your own wood and still want to save about 50% or more a phone to your local fire wood guy will do the trick! He will love you and save you some money from the next guy because you can burn all kinds of wood which he can’t pass off the fireplace guys. The fire wood guy has wood that has insects and pine wood and big old knots that can’t be split, tell him to bring it all and also let him know that you don’t need the wood split just small enough for you to pick up and the length of the wood doesn’t really matter. He will be call you twice a month and bring beers and hanging out with you by your furnace. (This is experience Talking)
Secondly you help keep your little piece of heaven clean of debris and looking good.
Thirdly I love providing for my family and giving them a warm house and hot water. Before my wood furnace my house was at 68 degrees and costing me $300 to $400 a month. When I got the wood furnace my heat went up to 74 degrees and it felt good knowing that I provided that. Another nice advantage is the hot water, you get free hot water as well that means 30 minute long hot showers.
